Sodomy is the sexual conduct of a man inserting his penis in the anus eitherof another man or a woman however slight the penetration may be. Sodomy is considered a felony in California if it is performed by force, without consent or with someone incapable of consent.
Sodomy is crime that dates back, in the Christian context, to the immorality attached to the Biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, where we are told the homosexual practices of the inhabitants led to their destruction. The background to this, aside from religious and moralistic views, is that homosexual activity also was a non procreative sexual act that would not increase the population base. As history has evolved sodomy has remained a social and legal taboo for the most part and in many instances also incorporates oral sex. The reality is that the crime is most often prosecuted against rapists who commit heterosexual assaults and against members of the gay community. Such cases also frequently draw the attention of the media, making the selection of attorneys such as ours that are experienced in handling such charges an important factor in protecting your rights.
As with the overwhelming majority of sexual crimes, a conviction on the charge of sodomy can carry weighty punishment, including lengthy incarceration and the requirement that the defendant register as a sex offender. Both penalties carry lifelong stigma that affects residency, employability and social status. Because of these factors it is important that you contact our experienced lawyers as soon as possible so that they can begin working on your case. Sex crimes are traditionally vigorously prosecuted by the authorities, who delegate extensive resources to the investigation and prosecution of such cases.
